    Change configuration runtime

    Marco Schulze Newbie

      Hello *,

      I'm using jboss 3.2.2 together with jpox (a jdo implementation).

      Because one server is managing multiple datasources dynamically, I need to be able to change the configuration runtime. It should work like that:

      1) User clicks a button.
      2) My EJB creates a new database...
      3) ...and deploys a jdo PersistenceManagerFactory for this database.

      My problem lies in point 3: I have to update the file ${jboss}/server/default/deploy/jpox-ds.xml, but this brings the following problems:

      * I've read that you should never use java.io.* within an EJB. How can I access this file if I can't use java.io.*? I mean, of course, I would use sth. like Xerces to edit the file, but I guess, this uses java.io.* itself...
      * How can I know where this file is? Is there a way to ask jboss where its deploy directory lies? Or is there another way to open and change the file?

      Thanks a lot for your help in advance!!!

      Best regards, Marco :-)

        • 1. Dukes Bank jboss-build.xml anyone psot a version using Oracl
          Marco Schulze Newbie

          I am trying to connect my JBoss application to Oracle to use so that Dukes Bank is uses an Oracle Database instead of HyperStream I have tried to follow the tutorial in the Dukes Bank example using OracleXA:

          These are the steps I have carried out so far:

          1) I have modified the oracle-ds and deployed it to : C:\jboss-3.2.5\server\default\deploy

          <!-- Uses the pingDatabase method to check a connection is still valid before handing it out from the pool -->
          <!-- Checks the Oracle error codes and messages for fatal errors -->
          <!-- sql to call when connection is created
          <new-connection-sql>some arbitrary sql</new-connection-sql>

          <!-- sql to call on an existing pooled connection when it is obtained from pool - the OracleValidConnectionChecker is prefered
          <check-valid-connection-sql>some arbitrary sql</check-valid-connection-sql>


          2)) Modified C:\jboss-3.2.5\server\default\conf\jboss-service.xml

          <!-- The configurable Xid factory. For use with Oracle, set pad to true -->


          3) Copied classes12.jar to C:\jboss-3.2.5\server\default\lib

          4) Copied oracle-xa-ds to C:\jboss-3.2.5\server\default\deploy

          <xa-datasource-property name="URL">jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:BankDB</xa-datasource-property>
          <xa-datasource-property name="User">system</xa-datasource-property>
          <xa-datasource-property name="Password">manager</xa-datasource-property>
          <!-- Oracles XA datasource cannot reuse a connection outside a transaction once enlisted in a global transaction and vice-versa -->

          <depends optional-attribute-name="TransactionManagerService">jboss:service=TransactionManager

          But I am not sure what to do next as regards the jboss-build.xml file:

          It makes references to the HyperSonic Build Tool, since I want to use Oracle I should delete all references to hsqldb in the jboss-build.xml, but not to sure what I should add to make sure that Dukes Bank points at Oracle.

          Thanks for any help.
